Insta-Friday: Gobble Vacation Edition

Nowadays over here (a many other school districts) Thanksgiving means an entire week of school off. And (hello furlough days) this also means a week off for me too...which is nice.
This had to have been one of the best days ever that i have spent with my little peeps. Roller skating (yes, of course I skated) with friends, the park, Pier 1, Flame Broiler for dinner, then Barnes & Noble.great day.
Funky Santa Metro Link train production. Full-fun tub. Patient 14 year old cat. My desk. My hard-hat wearing husband looking at the receipt that says we'll be getting $8.13 for recycling our 5.5 year old washer.humbling.
Gobbling it up at my dads. Too many documentaries lead me to do crazy things. FYI, celery is strong when juiced. Happy Subway customers.

Insta-Friday:Mostly Food Edition

Last Friday started with a round of streep for one of my little peeps..and some freaky-huge tonsils.not cute.
 Cheap muffin mix and 1/4 of whole wheat flour=scones
 This makes working at a new school just a little easier.
Attempting something new and "fun."
Those aren't pancakes...they are supposed to be tortillas:fail...fun-ish though.
Scary.
My magical kit I got from here.
{I'm too lazy at this point to take a final product picture..but it's pretty awesome.even if my husband had to school me on some sewing machine tips.}
 Dinner date with my Abigail....a sandwich for her...burrito salad for me! 
Thank goodness for strip malls.
Bounce house birthday party. Always fun.

No, it's not Friday.
happy day
I'm failing at this.

Real Insta-Friday: iPhone Style

A few weeks ago I got this:
I'm not usually one to be all hyped up on technology, but after spending 15 days serving Jury Duty on a computer hardware patent case I'm all over it! 
{Thanks c3mos, or should I say DrArmond Harapetian for the 3 hour testimony.}
Siri is now a part of the family.

No this isn't an 8-track. This is the Otter-Box cover for my phone...because I drop phones...and it would be a sad day in Mudville if she broke. Unfortunately since she's SO new & FANCY{cough*gloat) they don't have pretty colors to cover her yet.

Thank you Costco for making my 6 year old and I happy!

The girls have been begging to go to this park in ghetto Anaheim for ages...it really is a great park.
And it was gorgeous out.

Ahh Halloween Fun-fetti cake...4 days after Halloween.
I had to make something I liked.
{since I already raided the candy buckets}

The Happy Day Project

Being spontaneous and randomly thoughtful doesn't always seem to be the first choice over here. So it's something I {we, but default} are going to attempt to work on...we'll see how it goes.

Here is the mission:
Read this.
I have a blog crush on this lady. 
Don't tell her, I'm local so now it just sounds creepy. ;-)
Here was the inspiration:
Read this.

I started this morning by offering to get my co-workers this:
{yes, it IS self-serving as well}
However one insisted it was their turn to buyand forced me to take money...but I am SOOOO still counting this one!

While there I also got one of these
for the new teacher I'm working with... after all the woman has aloud me sneak out early all this week since we had 1/2 days. It's such a treat to leave work early to pick up my own kids from school♥


This brought some extra happiness this morning...from a thoughtful coworker.
